Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month Blog Hop

We just love dies that transform into different things!  When you look at this die template there is no limit to the ways it can be fixed and flipped and folded to give you a beautiful prop, box, or card.  Welcome to the APG May 2020 Die of the Month - Fleur de Lis Grandeur Fold Over. 

We often talk about that "easy to use die template" that you reach for time after time after time.  
This is one of those.  This month after using it we've seen it make the most darling filigree envelope that simply requires cutting and folding.  We've seen it make a simple notecard that will produce a card in under five minutes.  We've seen it make a box top that simply takes the time to score and fold the box and drape the die over the top.  As always, the die makes a card that goes from just die-cutting to one that has layers of the filigree elements crisscrossed.  Lol, do cards make themselves?  
Almost with this one - that puts in on our "goto" list.

Here are the dies included in the set:

My project today:

My first inspiration for today's Hop is a horizontal card with decorative sides. 
On the top, I added two layers of square beautiful die-cut, gold and cream.
Flowers are made with a die from this set. 

Sentiment on printed firstly on a paper and then die cut.

My second project is a box with triangular walls. 

I die cut each side with die without an outline and then I added the same die cut twice with the outline.  At the top of my box, I cut out holes to tie it up with a ribbon.

Supply List:
Stamps: none; sentiment is printed 
Paper: Mint, creme and gold paper
Ink: none

Harmony Doily

My new inspiration for Amazing Paper Grace.
Flowers are handmade. The light pink roses are made with Spellbinders dies (S5-050 Donna Salazar Rese Creation), one of the first dies I ever bought.
The dark pink flower is made with S4-1015 Candlewick Rosebud - one of my favourite.

To decorate I used a little of White Gesso and glitter.

I also added a decorative element made from resin and painted Prima's paints.

3D Project Step by Step - March Die of the Month - again

Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month again.

Because lots of people are up for how I did a mini table I decided to show you this project step by step.

Here you are March DOM. I used only these dies.

You will need 8 of the corner die cuts to make table legs. 
I used gold paper for this.

Use square die to cut one "tabletop". I did it with white paper.
I put two corners widthways of the white square. Secure them to the mat using tape.

Using a knife cut them exactly at the midpoint.

This is how they should look like. Complete all four pair of corners this way.

Put together two pieces of cut corners on cardstock and trace them. 

Use scissors to cut out the shape, background for corners. Make sure you cut a little more than trace to hide the edge of pink background under the gold corners.

This is what you should have.  You’ll need four of these.

Adhere gold corners on cardstock (I used pink this time) end to end.

You should have one tabletop and four legs.

Cut 4 strips (there are white on photo) and score in half.
Adhere white paper to the one panel at the edge (tabletop upside down) and then adhere panels side to side.

Using smaller strips, I attached legs together with the same way.

Here is the previous mini table I did for March DOM Blog.

Embellish outside with circle die and flowers. ENJOY!
